After much dicking around with an engineer from wollongong (PM me to find out who), I ended up contacting Peter (mrp69) and asking about his engineer.
Apart from being a little late he turned up and got right into the business of checking my car, asking only the questions he needed to and generally being very quiet. After about 30 mins he said "hmmm arent you lucky of the age, you'll get away with the pod filter!" WHAT? My other engineer was being a total prat about that, telling me I needed to fit an OEM airbox from some any make of vehicle. The only thing he picked in the engine bay was my 100% nasty BOV... No biggie, I have almost finished the pipe work to get rid of it.
Then he moved onto the wheels...
- He doesnt care that I have different stud patterns front to rear!
- Brake test is fine.
- Track and wheel size is fine.
- I have to remove the spacers (front) and the PCD converter plates from the rear... - this is going to be a headache.
- I will need to get my speedo recalibrated if I dont get my rolling diameter within 15mm of 590mm....
- Suspension is fine!
The only other thing he mentioned was that I will need to fit a retractable belt to the passenger side of the vehicle (already have one on the drivers).... Again, no biggie...
So just have to sort the wheels out (and therefore most likely the stud pattern) and I'm set!
So please if you have any engineering needs in Sydney contact:
